The Noids (cancelled Domino's Pizza mascot-based animated series; 1988)
(Redirected from The Noids (Cancelled CBS Animation Series; 1988))
The Noids is a cancelled 1988 Saturday morning cartoon based on the "Noid" character featured in the Domino's Pizza commercials in the mid-late 1980's.
The show would have featured a group of Noids, engaged in various situations designed to underscore the characters' inclination to misadventure.
The original Noid character was famously animated in claymation, but it seems improbable that this medium would have been retained for a TV animated series, considering it is very time-consuming, and is most likely to have been traditional 2D.
The show was meant to air in the 1988-89 fall schedule on CBS.
However, the project was cancelled amid complaints that it was merely an advertising ploy and unsuitable as a show for children, not unlike Yo! It's the Chester Cheetah Show.
Additionally, the infamous Kenneth Lamar Noid incident, where Noid held up a Domino's restaurant under the assumption the mascot was made to specifically mock him, has likely sealed the show's fate forever.
No other information of the show has surfaced.
